RED HOUSE
By Jen Begeal

GENRE: Crime
LOGLINE:

A small town Sheriff and a Native American teenager become the targets of a vindictive gas company exec and a corrupt cop while tracking a serial killer hunting local Native women.

SYNOPSIS:

The story takes place in two locations; the picturesque farming community of Red House, PA at the base of the sprawling Endless Mountains, and on the Allegany Indian Reservation in New York State, with which Red House shares a border. Both sit right in the middle of the Marcellus Shale, the largest natural gas field in the United States, making the area a lucrative target for gas companies.

A rash of disappearances involving Indigenous women has locals on the reservation worried. The cases have so far been generally ignored by the reservation’s police force and the FBI, but when Red House town Sheriff Dean Lockwood and Indigenous teen, Madison Heron, uncover evidence leading to what appears to be the work of a serial killer, the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) steps in to stop the investigation.

Meanwhile the town of Red House is facing problems of its own, poisoned wells, dying livestock and a rising drug problem leave Dean fighting a battle on two fronts. The gas drilling has forced people from their homes pushing the the town economy to the brink of collapse.

An unlikely duo, Dean and Madison’s are often put at odds with one another due to their age and cultural differences, however as external tensions mount they must find a way to work together to find the serial killer responsible for the murders and save Red House, and the reservation, from the destruction caused by GLI.
